Recipe by Barb G.
This easy to make salad is delicious. Use sugar free gelatin if desired. You can use light or dark honey the light-colored honey is milder in flaver while the darker-colored are stronger. Setting to firm time not included.

Wonderful! I have a real weakness for jello salads that my children seem to share. This was lovely, not too sweet or heavy. I took the time to finely grate the carrots and was glad I did. While officially a salad, I served this for dessert and the kids ate and enjoyed every bit, never knowing they were eating their veggies. Thanks, Barb, for a delicious recipe!
